The experiment: male subjects were divided into 3 groups
Afterwards, all subjects were insulted by a female assistant and then allowed to ‘retaliate’ against her with electric shocks.
However, half of the group was told they could be as aggressive as they wished (disinhibited group); the other half were given a message to make them reluctant to use aggression (inhibited group).
